A tip helped police identify and take into custody a “person-of-interest” in last Friday’s fatal shooting outside the Troost Market convenience store, police announced Wednesday.
The day after the shooting, police released surveillance photos of a man in the store, saying that they wanted to talk to him. Police said he might have information about the fatal shooting of Airrin P. Scott, 23, of Kansas City.
Someone shot Scott about 8:30 p.m. Friday as he walked out of the parking lot of the store at Troost Avenue and East 80th Street. Witnesses told police that Scott and the shooter had argued prior to the shooting.
